This lithograph, titled “Le Remorquer” or “The Tug”, by French artist Michel Delacroix (1933-) depicts an urban landscape nestled near a river or waterway scene, tugboat and freighters passing in the foreground under grey skies punctuated by patches of white clouds. A renowned painter of the “naif” or “naive” styling, Delacroix’s regular subject matter centers around the city of Paris; specifically the Paris of the 1940s. In the U.S. alone, Delacroix’s work has been showcased in over 300 exhibitions and in 1994, he was named an Official Artist of the Olympic Committee, furthering his already-prestigious career. Housed in a wood frame, this lithograph is plate signed by the artist along the lower left corner of the print and is heavily matted to better accentuate the urban beauty of Delacroix's work.
